This unit has the buttons on the dash for 4H, 4L, 2H. Is it 10possible to put the transfer case in the neutral position. I am interested in towing it with 4

Hi 499peb12,

Thank you for the donation.

This transfer case has a Neutral position. A shift to the Neutral position allows the vehicle to
be towed without the rear axle rotating the transfer case main shaft and the transmission output
shaft. Neutral position may be obtained only if the following criteria has been met: " The key is ON.
" The automatic transmission is in Neutral.
" The vehicle speed is below 5 km/h (3 mph).
" The transfer case is in 2HI mode.

Once these conditions have been met, press and hold both the 2HI and 4LO buttons for 10
seconds. When the system completes the shift to neutral, the red neutral lamp will illuminate.
